1 FROM the palace of His glory,
From the home of joy and love,
Came the Lord Himself to seek us;
He would have us there above.
2 There from that eternal brightness
Have His thoughts flowed forth in love;
He in His great love would have us
Ever there with Him above.
3 Trembling, we had hoped for mercy ---
Some lone place within the door;
But the crown, the throne, the mansion
All were purposed long before.
4 And in past and distant ages,
In those courts so bright and fair,
Ere we were, was He rejoicing,
All He won with us to share.
